It may sound ‘cheesy’ but a poutine festival is something that Canadian dreams are made of. Metro Vancouver is just the same.

For the second year in a row, Canadians will get to experience Poutine with Purpose. This event occurs over several cities: Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, and Hamilton and works with Mealshare to support giving back healthy meals to youth.

That’s right, for partaking in this Vancouver poutine festival, you are giving back.

For every poutine you get during this poutine festival, one meal will be provided to a youth in need. Since 2013, over 35,000 poutines have been sold in support of Mealshare.

Poutine with Purpose takes place from April 23rd – May 1st.
